Nicaragua condemns aggressive US policy against Venezuela

Managua, Mar 6 (Prensa Latina) Nicaragua on Wednesday strongly condemned the aggressive and interventionist policy imposed by the United States on the worthy peoples of the world, especially Venezuela.

In a statement, the Sandinista Executive pointed out this time that the US outrage reaffirms the senseless declaration of designating Venezuela as National Security emergency against the United States.

The statement titled “Always Supporting Venezuela” and signed by President Daniel Ortega and Vice President Rosario Murillo, recalled that a similar declaration has been published annually against Nicaragua since 2018.

“The Yankee Empire with its constant arbitrary, aggressive, destructive and criminal policy, only increasingly shows its own fragility, ahead of courage raised by the peoples that we are dignity and national decorum in the immortal demands for respect and justice of all our heroes,” the text read.

The highest Nicaraguan authorities conveyed their greetings to Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, people and government, aimed at reaffirming the protagonist and complementary democracy, which, they said, is being strengthened daily in the midst of a cruel war imposed by the United States and hatred that eats and destroys them from within.

The U.S. government renewed on Tuesday, for another year, Executive Order 13692, considering Venezuela an “unusual and extraordinary threat to national security and foreign policy”, signed back in 2015 by then President Barack Obama.

Such a decision laid legal, political and administrative foundations for imposing unilateral coercive measures on Venezuela.

The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry strongly rejected on Wednesday the renewal of the U.S. presidential decree and pointed out that it is being used by the United States to “justify a sustained aggression campaign ¨against the Venezuelan people, in violation of international law.
